“The saga follows the fortunes of the Mabie family who came to Western Australia as pioneers, settling in and around the new Swan River colony.  It is an absorbing account of their desperate fight against starvation, against hostile Aborigines and, as free settlers, against their land becoming a penal colony.
Into the Mabie history is woven the story of Janet Mabie, reckless, unconventional, delightful – a woman born to be a tormentor of men.”
